Bingbing Li talks “Resident Evil: Retribution”: “You can’t imagine…how scary the movie is going to be”

There are plenty of big sequels to be excited for this year, and one of the ones we’re looking forward to is “Resident Evil: Retribution.” The film follows leading lady Milla Jovovich as she uncovers some mind-blowing secret that will cause her to rethink everything she — and we — thought was true in the previous “Resident Evil” films. IFC caught up with one of the movie’s stars, Chinese actress Bingbing Li, on the Spirit Awards red carpet and asked her to share some details about the upcoming film.

“You cannot imagine what’s going to be happen in the movie and how scary the movie is going to be,” she said excitedly, calling it a “huge production.” “[It will be] a lot different from the other ‘Resident Evil’ [movies].”

We already know that “Resident Evil: Retribution” will travel all over the globe as Jovovich hunts down those responsible for releasing the T-virus. Apparently Li was brought into the film to add some ethnic diversity to the cast as Jovovich’s Alice travels to China.

“They invited me as a Chinese face in this movie,” she said about her character Ada Wong. “It’s a very Chinese face.”

This was Bingbing’s first time at the Spirit Awards, so she said the entire experience was new to her. That being said, she was already a big supporter of the event.

“I think the Independent Spirit Awards are very special,” she said. “We can give young people more chance to do what they want to do. So I love this awards [show].”

“Resident Evil: Retribution” hits theaters on September 14. In addition to Jovovich and Li, the movie stars Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts and Colin Salmon. In it, Paul W.S. Anderson reprises his role as director of the franchise.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
